Discover why Colombia can lay claim to being one of the world's hottest tourist destinations with a flight from British Airways. A cliché perhaps, but few places can truly boast such contrast and variety. Explorers will love the vast Amazonian wilderness of the Amacayucu National Park and you might even see a pink dolphin. Culture vultures can immerse themselves into Bogota's vibrant Salsa scene or lose themselves in the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Cartagena's walled city, South America's first Spanish Colony. Book your flights to Bogota with British Airways and Iberia and start your adventure in style.
Visitors from nations including the UK, most European countries and the US can enter Colombia with no visa required for stays of up to 90 days. The visitors passport must be valid for at least six months.
Just 20 minutes from the city centre by taxi, El Dorada International Airport is Latin America's third busiest. Buses including the Transmilenio (bus rapid transit system) offer a cost effective transfer option although not suitable if carrying large items of luggage. The regulated airport taxi system is safe although taxis in Bogota itself should be requested by phone or official taxi stand for safety reasons.
